Juncker: Up to Westminster to ratify agreement first

President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said on Tuesday that the British parliament must ratify the Brexit agreement before the European Parliament.

"It’s not imaginable that this Parliament will ratify the Brexit deal agreement before they have done so in Westminster. First London, and then Strasbourg," he stated.

Juncker also stressed "the uge amount of work" both sides have completed before arriving at the final deal and that although he regrets the UK's decision to leave the EU, all steps have been taken to prepare the bloc "for all eventualities."
